I think I do that, I encourage new members by welcoming them, responding to their post sending request and all that. Of course you cannot do that to everybody but at least you can start with a few of them. I do hope anyways that I would be able to find new friends from mylot that I can keep for real.

It depends on what their discussion is about. I will not respond to a discussion that is likely to be deleted. I will not respond to a discussion with an I don't know. If it is something that I can help and does not fall into the first two categories, I will respond to. It is not about "oh I am such a nice person for helping out these newcomers," and I do not go out of my way to be extra extra nice. It is just that I regard them the same as I do longer being members of myLot. Besides I am incapable of writing and giving myself a pat on the back at the same time.

You have to be careful because sometimes you think you are helping, but because they do not read the guidelines, the whole discussion is deleted and if they are not on the friends list yet, you cannot write them a private message yet. Even if the discussion looks to be innocent, it can be deleted. For instance if they are asking a money question and specify an exact amount, that will be deleted.

Most of my responses are directed at responses started by newbies.My intention is to see that they aren't discouraged in the beginning.I would be even more encouraged if they respond to my view saying why they agree or contradict my opinion.Other than responding to new comers i make it a point to respond to any discussion i find interesting.
